Denial of Service Attacks & Copying CDs

A few days ago denial of service attacks became illegal in the UK. It took a long time to get the Computer Misuse Law updated simply because MP's don't understand how important computers are to everyday businesses.

Now the BPI is pushing (about 30 years to late) to make it legal to copy pre-recorded music that you have in one media form to another for personal use. Since the days of tapes people have been copying their own music to play on a walkman and this has never been entirely legal.
